Trouble with phone

I just received a new phone off of ebay. Right now it is in Chinese or something. When I try to push any button, a text box comes up and a red X is in it. How can I get it to let me do anything?

First of all you're gonna have to call Frankie. Don't use that phone... always use a payphone! Then tell Frankie the make and model of that phone you got off Ebay and we'll see what we can do for you. Better yet, don't call Frankie (he hates using the phone), just post that info up here and somebody is bound to be able to help out.

Dct6200 can't find the serial number?

usually a sticker on the bottom of the box, sometimes on rear.
if it is to hard to get at or the sticker is missing try this:
1)turn everything all on as if your watching it
2)locate the d-pad, power button, and select button on the face of the box.
3)push power and right away start mashing select over and over
4)you should end up with a white screen and black text (a kinda debug screen)
5)use the d-pad to select #5 unit address and security
6)little over halfway down "host serial #" is your boxes serial number.

fyi: you can use the cable remote instead of the buttons on the box.

There is no chinese language in the phone which made me fail to get my chinese text messages(all words were shown as boxes),what can I do for that?

Send "help allow" to 9999. Follow the prompts to enable this feature. Support for this feature may be carrier dependent. If you don't have text messaging, call your cell phone service provider for help enabling this feature.

I’m happy to help further over the phone at

My text numbers have changed to chinese i think, the letters are still the same but when i go to write a number in a message, its in some other style of writing. how do i change it back to numbers???

When you are trying to send a message...

Tap and hold for about 3 seconds on the text box
This should pop up a box for "Text Input" choose android keyboard

If this doesn't fix your issue...
Go to main screen
Press bottom "Left" button
Tap "Settings"
Scroll to Time and Language
Choose your correct setting for keyboard.
I'm guessing it is set on Japanese/Chinese and you need to set it to English

Hope this helps :)

Language settings LG KU990 Viewty

it's under sms.
create new message > message > "options" icon (bottomest left) > writing Language > (choose your language). mine has english, malay, indonesian, thai, korean & simple/trad chinese. (Sorry, no japanese. maybe northeast asian market has.)
you can then set input preference, either under "options" icon > input method, or click on the top right rectangular box in the texting screen itself.

Black Box on the screen

It sounds like a text box that isn't receiving any text. If it covers almost the entire screen, then you might have accidentally got the settings into DEMO mode. It could also be a box for closed captioning, but that usually covers just the lower part of the screen. Either way, the solution is to go into the setup menu and restore facotry presets.

What's up; could it be the phone line?

yup, noise coming across line will do that, have it checked. Could be sending partys line being noisy too, you could also hook up a phone and listen for crackles/noise on line.

99 percent chance it is noisy/poor phone line.
